Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was the only rookie to make the list as the gaming website Bovada.lv released its odds for the NFL most valuable player this season.

The favorite is Peyton Manning at 3-1, followed by Drew Brees at 11-2 and Aaron Rodgers at 15-2. The first seven players with the best odds are all quarterbacks.

Manziel comes in at 100-1, which sounds like a longshot until others with the same odds are considered.

Manziel is listed with the same odds are Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton, Houston running back Arian Foster, Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy, Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco and New England tight end Rob Gronkowski. So Manziel's early odds to win the MVP are the same as the starting quarterbacks for the Ravens and Bengals.

Four players are listed with odds of 150-1, two with 200-1.

Though Manziel was the only rookie listed for MVP, he was not the leader to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

The best odds went to Sammy Watkins, the receiver drafted by the Bills.

He came in at 9-2; Manziel is listed at 6-1.
